That's very strange. I think Bono's vocals are much better now than
they were in the 80's. The vocal coach Pavarotti referred him to at
the beginning of the 90's did wonders.
What are you cerdentials and exactly why do you downgrade Bono's
singing now? I am curious. Are you a trained singer?
What he's doing now has much more emotional range. Of course, some
people are not sensitive to that much emotional range and don't
hear it.
